1.) Despite other things you may have heard, guacamole will remain on the menu at Chipotle. In a recent report the chain is required to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Chipotle warned its investors of a possible shortage of avocados. The restaurant chain is required to disclosure risk issues, such as supply costs. The report noted an avocado shortage could result in cost increases and the company could choose to suspend serving a menu item rather than paying the increased costs. According to Think Progress, Chipotle uses an average of 97,000 pounds of avocados every day -- or 35.4 million pounds a year -- to make its guacamole.
2.) Instead of putting his nose to the grindstone, Mohammed Khurshid Hussain prefers to stick his nose on a computer keyboard. And, it has paid off because Hussain can hold his head up high as the world's fastest nose typist. He typed the sentence "Guinness World Records have challenged me to type this sentence using my nose in the fastest time" in 47.44 seconds last week in India. That broke the previous nose typing record of 1 minute, 33 seconds set in 2008.
3.) The newest smart device may be connected vending machines. These high tech machines will allow you send gifts of snacks to friends. You enter your social media account into the machine so the system can recognize your friends. After you choose a recipient, the vending machine will send a notification message to that friend, along with a code that allows the friend to pick up your gift at a participating vending machine.
